To embarrass tax defaulters and collect tax, the Municipal Corporation’s house tax branch on Friday went in various areas and beat dhols outside the houses of tax defaulters. This was a way to make them feel ashamed. The trick worked to some extent as the MC team collected Rs 1.98 lakh from eight people.

Dhol-beating was done in Janakpuri, Transport Nagar, Hargobind Nagar, Tajpur Road, Industrial Area A, Focal Point 4 and 7 areas.
Abdul Sattar, superintendent of house tax branch, said that 13 cheques were received and the rest was the cash amount.
